    He's been pretty bad lately to the point where I wanted to see him at the plate in big pressure situations vs the Reds...I'll miss the guy.

    Just going to say that. He was locked in over the weekend.

    The Cardinals do play the Braves in September, so it can definitely help.

    So that means Troy Glaus will move to 3rd for them? I thought I heard his arm was dead

    Slightly off-topic: How is his name pronounced? Is it "Gloss" or is it "Glouse" with an "OW" sound. I think I've heard it both ways.

    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    The Cards have 6 games left vs. the Braves, we have none.

    If his arm is dead, he should go to the Cards and tutor Lopez.

    The dead leading the dead.

    No "OW".
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Living in Atlanta, this has definitely been the recurring theme they've said over and over. But desperate times call for desperate measures.

    Hasn't Glaus pretty well gone down the tubes in July-August?

    I could see Lee to 1B and someone like Brooks Conrad to 3B. He sure lights up the Reds.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    According to what I've read, Glaus to the bench, Lee at 1st, Conrad at 3rd.

    They're going to use Prado at 3b and Infante at 2b I think.
